When they first came out with them (bullet points), thats what they looked like. It was a pointy bullet looking head! 20 years ago when I firststarted bow hunting they were called that.I've never been a fan of them. I like the cutting edge right away.

OH, and I'd like to point out that I'm strictly talking about the 2 blade Rage, not the 3 blade. I wouldn't shoot the 3 blade personally.

Wow, I've been hunting the last couple of days and have missed all the drama. I just postedMY observation on using the Rage on two different deer that were properly placed shots but it is now obvious to me that I am not as qualified as others to post actual results on this issue.
Ihave attachedpictures(hopefully) of my recent Rage broadhead used ona perfect broadside double lung shotfrom a 28" inch drawand 66# draw weight using Easton Axis 340 carbon arrows. Please enlighten me as to the error of my way o great ones.

Like I said before I have the three blade and I have never had them open up on me whether it be in the quiver or on the bow. I know you should check and see if they are "snapped" into place on the o-ring. Just a little squeeze and they dont move at all. When I shot my doe earlier, my BH looked just like the one in jackflap's pict., however it was my fault as I didnt makea perfect shot and I hit just below the spine. So I really dont know if it was the BH's fault that it looked like that. Who knows maybe another BH would have looked the same. All I know is the blood trail was very easy to find and so was she. Within 20 feet of hitting her, I could see blood running down her side.

Without reading all of the posts, I really believe if I were to try a mechanical it would be a Rage BUT..............there is no need for me to do so. I've had excellent success through the years using Muzzys and for now the Rocky Mtn. Turbos.

Besides, I have had two friends with bad experiences using mechs. One had a passthrough on a buck this season using a Rocket head, no blades opened and the rubber band was still intact. The otherbuddy opened a new pack of NAP Shockwaves and tested all 3 on a broadhead target. 1 of the 3 heads failed to open.

People can say what they want, but this testshows the real deal, nothing performs better than the Grim Reaper! And they encouraged other manufactures to duplicate the test to see if they come up with the same results.

The Grim Reaper is covered by 13 different patents!!!!!

Just watch the Rage explode like a grenade after its fired through a steel drum, while the Grim Reaper is not even damaged!

Looks like their marketing methods worked. There is no way i can believe what i see in some videos, its just too easy to sway results in one companys favour. Do you really think they are going to do all these tests and have there broadhead come out second best, of course not. Id love to see on of those make an entrance hole the size of a rage. Dont take this seriously, just some food for thought.

I believe what I've seen, and Grim Reaper encourages other companies to duplicate the test tosee if they get the same results!They used nearly $1500 worth of broadheads, and plainly said "these are the finest broadheads in the world and will ALL kill a deer with proper shot placement". They also showed broadheads that were equal in penetration, so I believe in the credibility of the tests.

Also, because of the Grim Reapers patented inner spring mechanism, they do not need o'rings, and do open upon impact creating a large entrance hole.

If you don't believe the videos are fabricated, getsome Grim Reapers, and fire them and your Rage heads through a steel drum and see for yourself .

No offense at all..... this thread could use a little humor. Interesting thing, that is what they say in the video, "we don't hunt steel barrels" haha!!

I actually found it funny to watch the Rage blades explode after it hit the steel drum, and eventhough we are not shooting through steel, its nice to know your equipment will handle that kind of abuse. I oncehit a buck in the front shoulder with a Muzzyand knocked him right over! Although, I don't aim for bone, I want my broadhead to be tough enough to penetrate bone, and I can't honestly say the Rage won't, but can say the Reapers do!
